If Zachary Quinto's eyebrows look a little weird right now, he has good reason.

It's because shooting has started on J.J. Abrams' Star Trek sequel!

We caught up with Mr. Quinto the other night to talk about the much anticipated sci-fi follow-up...

"My eyebrows are shaved and I do my hair in a way that people don't know I actually have my horrible Spock hair," he told us at the Producers Guild Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

"It's been really great," he added. "We've been shooting for a week and a half, and it's been an incredible return to that world."

No surprise that Quinto was tightlipped on storylines, but he revealed that the cast didn't see the script until just a month before cameras started rolling.

"It was the middle of December and finally I had to be like, 'We need to read the script,'" Quinto said, with a smile. "They waited a pretty long time, but that's because they were working on it. There was a writer's strike the first time so they weren't able to let the script evolve. Now it's really changing...on a regular basis."

Benedict Cumberbatch, Peter Weller and Alice Eve are new additions to the cast. "All of them have folded in so beautifully and brought a whole new level of intelligence and sensitivity," Quinto said.

Cannot wait!
